This Family Portrait refers to traditional family blankets which are being passed on from one generation to another. It’s a unique portrait of my closest family, created from a single string of hair of my mother, father, brother, dog and myself.
The work is based on translation of microscopic photographs of hair throughout various mediums and techniques. It started with taking cyanotype paper negatives of microscopic hair prints, wondering whether is it possible to use cyanotype printing technique as a photography technique. What followed was scanning paper negatives and then printing them, both positives and negatives, on transparent film. Film was used for making traditional cyanotypes on white cotton sheets which were in the end sewed by hand in the form of a blanket.
